    im asking about this for a friend of mine.
    its a obd1 jdm b16, in a 97 civic hb hes running a p72

    problem: car runs fine, has vtec, then one day on the parkway, it starts running like shit, shuts down, and the ecu blows out. he opens the hood, sees nothing wrong, gets towed home cause obviosly the car wont start from the ecu being fried. turns out one of his injectors cracked, allowing fuel to enter the area on the injector where it plugs to the harness, in turn causing a short.
    new injector, new p72: it happened AGAIN! WTF!
    anyone have any ideas? no cel's
    thanks

    how long did it run right? are you absolutly sure all the wires are connected right- the difference between OBD1 and OBD2. Is there a fuse for the ecu under the hood or did yuo make a jumper wire. check that. You should have blown that before it goes all the way to the ECU. what kind of injectors are you running?
